Default My OSX SL Install said it failed at the end and now... - 02-18-2010, 06:55 AM

when I boot my dell 10v, it goes to the normal dell boot screen but then goes to a screen where it says

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM
Operating System not found


if I try to boot from the external drive, it's a no go too, it goes straight to that screen.

Have you tried 're-imaging' your USB drives, as it looks as if they are not being recognised... most folks seem to be reporting better success using TransMac.

You are using a 'retail' copy of Snow Leopard, aren't you?

I had the same error myself when the installation finished. The installed files are still physically on the hard drive though. You just need to boot to OSX from your NBI thumb drive, then install Netbookinstaller's drivers and files.
